Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery sang on episode 4 of the past season (I may be obsessed), but now she’s taking her voice to the big leagues in tandem with her co-star Elizabeth McGovern. That’s right, Lady Mary and Lady Grantham are releasing an album together. (Telegraph UK)

Joss Whedon fans, rejoice! Between The Avengers and Much Ado About Nothing, the sci-fi hero’s also working on a supernatural romance that will star Abigail Spencer, best known for being Miss Farrell (oh, poor Miss Farrell) from Mad Men. (Vulture)

Animated features, you’re no longer free of Jessica Chastain. The starlet who’s been in everything (The Tree of Life, The Help, The Debt, etc. etc. etc.) is signed on for Madagascar 3, joining Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, and Bryan Cranston (WHAT). (EW)

File this under “what took so long”: Glee is doing a Saturday Night Fever episode. Ryan Murphy, that gleeful little man, is teaming up with Bee Gee Barry Gibbs for the episode, which will air in April. (TV Guide)

Say what you will about Gawker, but this exchange is hilarious. NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams emailed Gawker chief Nick Denton about Lana Del Rey’s tepid performance on SNL this weekend, and well, let’s just say that he’s not a fan of the “Brooklyn hippster.” (Gawker)
